4 episodes to gooooooooooooooo!
Yep, there are 4 episodes left in season 10...and yep I am going to be counting down each week! I can't believe the season is nearly over! It seems to have whized by so fast...but on the flipside, "Black" seems like a millennia ago! Remember that time Dean was a demon? YES I DO AND IT WAS SCARY AND LET'S NOT HAVE IT EVER HAPPEN AGAIN. Even though it was hot. See! I'm selfless enough to put my hotness feels on the back-burner for Dean's soul!
It's the pointy/hurty end of the season now. Every episode will address this season's mythology and character's arcs, and may even set up some game pieces for season 11! Because don't forget, the team had a real early pickup, so they had plenty of time to start to plan the next stage of TORTURE FOR US!
Ugh. And yay! I'm so excited.
Okay, where are we?
Sam's got what he needs to crack the Book of the Damned and save his doomed brother's soul while possibly unleashing a nightmare of biblical proportions.
Rowena's got what she needs to read a book full of the most evil spells in existence. Awesome.
Dean's got no idea about either things and thinks Sammy and him are stronger together.... *sighs*
Cas is back
Claire is back
ROBBIE THOMPSON IS BACK!
(this is Claire not Robbie)
So here's where we revisit and possibly wrap up the Cas/Claire Novak story. This has been part of Cas' arc this season, dealing with the aftermath of doing something for the greater good. Dealing with the aftermath of his past angelic missions and the single focus that came with it. This particular aftermath being the destruction of the Novak family. We saw the angel Hannah come to a realisation about what taking a vessel not only does to the vessel, but also the people left in the angel's wake. Cas discovered what takng Jimmy Novak did to the Novak family when he came face to face with Jimmy's now grown up daughter. Cas has been trying to make amends ever since. Let's see how that pans out this week!
Here's the synopsis!
CLAIRE NOVAK RETURNS — When Claire Novak (guest star Kathryn Love Newton) gets a lead on her mother, Amelia (guest star Leisha Hailey), who has been missing for years, Castiel asks Sam and Dean to help her. Castiel feels guilty for what he did to the Novak family and wants to make amends by reuniting Claire with her mom. However, when they find out what took Amelia, they realize there is a chance Claire may not get her happy ending. Steve Boyum directed this episode written by Robbie Thompson (#1020).
(I guess Dean and Claire made up!)
I love Robbie Thompson, so much excitement that this is another Robbie episode. Steve Boyum has directed 8 episodes of Supernatural - the first one being season 2's "Crossroads Blues"! He directed "The End" and "Swan Song" among others...but I mention these two because they're in my top 5 eps...possibly top 3...depending upon what day you ask me!
It's interesting (and a little weird) that the Novak mum is named Amelia! And it sounds like maybe she didn't simply dump Claire? Which would certainly make a reunion between mother and daughter less fraught with anger issues!
We only got one 20 second promo this week and here it is...
Angelic assasin - teenage girl...which is tougher!? I'd also like to mention to Claire, that age or not...Dean gets damn well better looking every damn episode! Just thought I'd mention it... She's so sassy though. Also, Cas and Sammy in Baby! I love with Cas and Sam get to hang out. And Sammy's knocked out, must by Thursday :P
Okie dokie, sneak peek!
Oh awkward Cas...needing back-up to go see Claire. Bless. You were both troubled teams cracks me up, and I love Sam's little smirk. Super cute clip, which I'm pretty sure means that the episode won't be!
A gut wrenching family episode...well that's sounds like our show! Family is alwasy central to the story of Supernatural, and this season, it's not only been the brothers dealing with family and how that affects every aspect of their lives, Cas and Crowley have also been dealing with family issues - an angel and a demon having to traverse unfamiliar family territory.
I was interested in this tweet from the CW, because it didn't seem to tie into what we've seen so far of the episode, which made me wonder if the secret is about to slip? If not this week...definitely next week. No question.
So there you go. Often when we get a synopsis, promo and sneak peek pointing to one specific aspect of an episode, the episode winds up having something else going on concurrently. What's a bet this one does too.
Alrighty then! As my dad used to say, eyes down for a full house!
Bring it on!
